hank you for your interest in participating as a vendor at The Vintage Bazaar at Pettengill Farm.

Our semi-annual bazaar is an upscale {yet fun} outdoor market featuring antiques and home collectibles, vintage furniture and jewelry, original art and artisan crafts, architectural salvage and flowers. Live music throughout the day, delicious local food vendors, activities for children, vintage inspired photo-op areas, and much more. Pettengill Farm, established in 1792, is located at 45 Ferry Road in Salisbury, MA. We are located just minutes from Newburyport, Salisbury Beach, Route 1 and Route 95. The Bazaar is held twice a year. The dates for 2013 are June 22nd & 23rd and September 21st and 22nd. The hours are 10am–5pm. The Vintage Bazaar is a juried event, meaning vendors and dealers are selected based upon the goods they have to offer, how they are displayed, as well as pleasant personalities. Experience isn’t necessary, however friendliness and creativity are. Tip: display style is very important to us when reviewing applications. Displays should look well thought out, as if it were a little shop or boutique. Being a well-known established flower farm, we have developed a great number of frequent customers and fans. Our “Bazaar” followers are fantastic. . . those who mark their calendars a year in advance and plan their vacations around our special event. Over 8,000 people came to our September 2012 Bazaar—we anticipate an even greater turnout in 2013. Marketing is a key component and very important to us! We promote our events both locally and nationally through various mediums—traditional marketing, advertising, public relations, and social media. In early 2013, we are launching our new website: www.MyBazaarLife.com. This new website will better highlight our talented vendors and will also be the home to our new lifestyle blog, My Bazaar Life, featuring a collection of witty and inspiring blog contributors with assorted backgrounds. Applying is easy! Just complete the following application and submit it to us along with photos of your work and payment for space. If you are accepted into the bazaar, you will be notified and your space will be reserved. If you are not accepted, you will also be notified and your payment will be returned to you.
